Fits Like a Glove
Remember when you thought Uggs were funny looking? The glove-styled fitness shoe is stepping up as the next big funky footwear trend. Vibram’s FiveFingers line (shown here) marries the going-barefoot feel (five individual toe pockets enable each toe to move freely) with the protection and surefooted grip of a light, barely there, minimalist shoe. Originally developed as a barefoot alternative for sailing and light trekking, glove-style footwear is gaining speed with elite athletes and downward-facing-dog devotées alike. Check ‘em out at Acadia on Main (115 E Main St, Mount Kisco; 914-666-6800); prices range from $75 to $125.
